ITHACA, NY – “Back at home, I would have dance parties in my driveway with all of my neighborhood friends. YouTube was our instructor and no one was there to see our moves but us. Coming to Cornell, I had to find a place where I could dance. Then I found Sabor Latino.” – Isaiah Murray

Founded in 1992, Sabor Latino Dance Ensemble strives to educate the Cornell and surrounding Ithaca community about Latino culture through music, dance, and visual arts. The student group is composed of 40 undergraduate and graduate students at Cornell of various cultural backgrounds and ethnicities who all share one thing in common: a passion for dance.

“It was always my dream to be part of a dance club, and now I’m living my dream.” – Sharonee Vaca

This year the group will host their 23rd Annual Dance Concert themed “Cuentos de Amor” (stories of love). The show will highlight various relationship stages including attraction, romance, intimacy, and betrayal. The original, student-choreographed dance pieces range from traditional Latin dance styles of salsa, cha-cha, and cumbia to hip-hop/reggaeton, contemporary, and zouk.

“I can’t wait to perform what we have been practicing all semester! I will finally get to display my progression as a dancer.” -Eric Berg

“I love that moment when everything finally comes together on the day of the performance.” – Christine Jasmin
